From the Columbus Collection. Ex New York Sale XXXIV (6 January 2015), lot 45.

This is one of the most starkly beautiful issues of the Siculo-Punic series, with a head of Arethousa of exceptionally style, closely modeled on the Euainetos dekadrachms of Syracuse, and a wonderfully athletic Punic horse caught in mid-leap. The lack of any inscription or control marks emphasizes the artistry of the composition.
